Peacocks are large, colorful pheasants (typically blue and green) known for their train tails which spread out and have colorful “eye” markings. Technically, only males are peacocks. Females are peahens, and together, they are called peafowl. Peacocks are forest birds that nest on the ground, but roost in trees. They eat insects, plants, and small creatures. While in the diet, the most important is fresh and clean water.
In Hellenistic imagery, the Greek goddess Hera’s chariot was pulled by peacocks, birds not known to Greeks before the conquests of Alexander. Later, ancient Greeks believed the peacock a symbol of immortality. And in Christian iconography, the peacock is often depicted next to the Tree of Life.
